Why would you even want Morrow on your 3rd line? He's slow, he loses puck battles, he takes offensive zone penalties, he doesn't kill penalties ... in other words everything a good 3rd liner isn't.
He has no known chemistry with anyone who is going to be playing in the bottom 6. A large chunk of his utility was always predicated on Ribeiro's presence. What made him a valuable part of the team was that he was a guy who could put the puck in the net and bring some grit to the top 6. That's out the window.
Great, he's not in pain now. It's been 3 months since he's played a hockey game. Let's wait til the first hit he takes. Let's wait til the first reversal he throws.
There's no time for nostalgia, we're moving forward. Morrow is not part of that.
Nailed it. He's not a third line player. People are thinking "grit" and think he's perfect on a checking line, but the rest of his game says otherwise.
